I'm Mr. L. It's my privilege to teach our middle school kids band, chorus, general music, and "notes".
Band and chorus classes are open to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders during the MS's FLEX period. Students who successfully demonstrate that they are at grade level in their core classes may join the MS band and chorus programs. Students who are working towards that goal are eligible to join either band or chorus.
General music classes combine music history, classroom/study skills, and music performance. This year students are studying the Great Composers and Cupology. Cupology uses plastic cups as the "instrument" along with printed music scores for the performance component. General music classes run for thirty-six days as a Unified Arts class. All students take each of the middle schools Unified Arts classes. (Art, General Music, Gym, Health, and STEM-Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)
